Comprised of seven acres of growing space, South Chicago is our largest farm and produces the bulk of our harvests.

Grant Park Farm Tours

Established in 2005, Grant Park ‘Art on the Farm’ is located on the northwest corner of Congress Parkway and Columbus Boulevard, kitty-corner to Buckingham Fountain. Right in downtown Chicago, this half-acre farm is a partnership with the Chicago Park District.

This “landscaped” farm is used to teach folks how to grow an abundance of crops in a beautiful way and to explore the intersections of art, creativity, food, and farming. Here, we grow vegetables, culinary herbs, and edible flowers. These crops are planted in a way that demonstrates gardens can be both productive and pretty.

Our Youth Corps ambassadors are trained at this site to grow food and to give free tours to the thousands of people who walk past this site annually.
